Torrid (Sordid #2) by Nikki Sloane

Nikki Sloane can write. Now before I do my review, just let say, that this is nothing like Sordid, which isn’t a bad thing. For some, it may even be a good thing. While I loved Sordid, and it’s questionable morals, some didn’t. Which is understandable.

So if your steering clear due to the first, no worries, this one is dark, but not dubious consent dark.

I genuinely liked Oksana, while she was in over her head, she still held her own.

“I might not outsmart the devil, but I was willing to deal with him.”

Everyone has a agenda, including Oksana. She is betraying everyone while trying to make an ally, and keep herself alive.

It’s tricky, and a satisfying plot.

Vasilije is a great anti-hero, he’s cold, ruthless, and bit selfish, but he also has some redeeming qualities, which makes for a believable romance.

It was sexy and suspenseful.

Why 4 stars? It was a bit repetitive at times.

 

Blackwood by Celia Aaron

5 “What if I say please” Stars 

Well that was unexpectedly awesome. 13562512

I got this book when it came out, and read like the first 3 pages and thought eh this might not be for me. It was on kindle unlimited so not hard no foul. Boy was I wrong. This book is right up my ally. Mystery, suspense, and some hot taboo sex.

I devoured it. 

Once I got past the first chapter. I was sucked in.

Elsie is digging for answers, and she will do anything to get them. Even if it means leading her professor on and forging documents. She uses her archaeology degree as a front to get the answers to her father’s disappearance.

She’s a strong heroine, which I love.

Garrett Blackwood could dirty talk the panties off of me.

“If you said ‘please’, I’d fuck you so hard that you wouldn’t be able to sit down, walk, or breathe for days without thinking of my cock inside you.”

panty-drop

He really does try to keep Red at a distance, but Red is determined to bring out the beast. I can say I didn’t see the ending. This was some good stuff.

Passion & Venom (Venom #1) by Shanora Williams

**Trigger Warning**

I have never heard of this author, and its a damn shame because I loved this book. From my understanding dark isn’t her go too, but damn did she rock it.

yes

Gianna, I loved her, like girl crushed loved her. She kept her wits, she was strong, and she used her head. Her husband is murdered, she is kidnapped, and is held captive waiting for the boss to show up.

The boss being Draco. He is ruthless, dominant, evil, and down right sexy.

Scared-and-horny

Like I don’t even feel bad. Like the author can write a sex scene.

“You want to hate me, but I know you want my cock just as badly as I was your pussy, Gianna”

Draco demands obedience, and to be honest, as a dark reader lover,  I don’t think he was that bad to Gianna, I mean besides killing her husband.

well

LOL 

To my dark readers, I think you will enjoy this.

The biggest question when going into a dark read, is the anti hero redeemable,

My answer would be yes.

Lastly, Shanora Williams, I need the next book. Please

 

Ghost (Boston Underworld #3) by A. Zavarelli

So if you don’t know this already, let me tell you. I love a broken hero, almost as much as an anti hero, and I got the best of both worlds in Ghost.

14 in love

I can’t even put into words how much I freaking loved this book.

I felt pain, like I almost cried. almost

I don’t cry, There have been few books that have caused me to tear up. I must me a masochist, and Zavarelli is the sadist, because I loved it.

I know I know you get it , I loved the book. While the first part is sad, I was worried that Talia wouldn’t pull through. Now don’t get me wrong, its understandable. On that note there may be triggers for some.

This book has just the right amount of angst, It wasn’t overwhelming. It was just enough to pull at my heart strings, but not too much where I’m rolling my eyes.

When the heroine/or hero as already been through so much, we as the reader want the to see them happy. We want to see things go right for them. Ghost had the perfect balance.

Now don’t get me wrong Alexei does become an ass, and while some would ask if he’s redeemable. His groveling level was low, but I think what he went through may have been enough.

“I want you to know the level of my devotion to you,” he states. “I don’t ever want you to question it. The things I have and will continue to do to protect you. To avenge you. They are dark things. But that darkness is my burden to carry, and it always will be.”

 

I don’t know  what else to say, but I know i’ll forward to Zavarelli books, I love her writing style.

 

 

El Diablo (The Devil #1) by M. Robinson

So about 39% of the book, I was like I can’t go on…..but it did kick back up. So keep on keeping on.

We go through years and years through Alejandro life,  we meet him as just a teen boy. While I usually lose interest in books such as this, the author kept it engaging.

This book is almost depressing, Lexi enters later in the book, and she  brings light to the book, just like she brings light to Alejandro’s life.

This was my Lexi.  I had mad respect for her.

 

Mila 

It’s hard to review this book because there is a lot that happens, and it just one of those books that you have to hang on for the ride.

You know how some authors will start a book, and say I’m bad man, or  I’m evil, well  Alejandro really is. He’s the Devil.

At 89% I was livid. Just when  I didn’t think it could get worse……

wow huh

#savage 

The ending wasn’t a shock for me, the author left clues and I picked up on them. I was no doubt shocked by the delivery of the truth….again…. #savage

Now I was going to give this book 4 stars, because of the time the characters wasted, but I just couldn’t, the author wrote a long ass book, and I couldn’t put it down. She was able to create a character who I loved, but also wanted to kill.

I hate you but

 

Some will not like this book, Alejandro is going to break your heart, by doing BIG NO NO’s in the romance genre.

Read at your own risk.

Do I think Alejandro was redeemable at the end?

Yes and no

I will admit I was still on the fence.

 

This is War, Baby by K. Webster

ARC

HOLY CLIFFHANGER THAT WAS GOOD

Release date: February 29, 2016

Pre-order for .99

ADD on Goodreads

Wow this book! I was up till 4am reading this book, I received my ARC last night, and I told myself I was NOT going to read it till Saturday. Because I knew  K. Webster was going to consume me, and she did.

I enjoyed every last word of it.

K. Webster will take you to hell, and bring you back to the other side with no regrets.

regret nothing.gif

This book will suck you in, and not let you out.

I love Baylee, she is strong and compassionate. I love when I fall in love with the heroine. She is 17 years old, and her life is that of a typical teen, then everything goes to shit in a hand basket.

Gabe….. Oh Gabe

maybe

 

“She’ll belong to me and nobody will say a fucking word. Her father will thank me. Her mother will hug me. Her boyfriend will hate me. And she will love me.”  -Gabe

 

I went at war with myself, because I’m a dark romance lover, I anticipate falling in love with the devil.

Thats messed up

I know, but it’s true. I was worried to be honest, because Gabe is a heartless bastard. He has two weeks to train Baylee and sell her. We don’t know why, and the reader is  just as confused and hurt as Baylee.

Then he does sell her and here comes Warren.

14 in love

I love an anti-hero, but oh how I love a broken hero, and Warren is a broken man,

“War is lost inside is own head most of the time, but for that brief moment, he’d lost himself in me.”

“And I liked it.”

I can’t tell you much more, but I can tell you that you are going to love this book, Even when you hate Gabe or Warren you will Love it!

This is a DARK ROMANCE. FYI

DO NOT STOP reading, at least go to about 55%, then decide.

 

 

Clubwhore (Devil’s Renegade MC #1) By Kim Jones

new-girl-big-deal-alert

This book was awesome.

Delilah is a “Clubwhore” and she loves her job.

“This book is dedicated to:
Whores.
Truth is, you’re smarter than most women. You get paid for sex, while the rest of us have been giving it away for years. So hats off to you, promiscuous women—you’ve figured it out.”

Delilah is a constant fight with her demons. She has a system, and it works for her, until a mystery man shows up and unsettles her.

Byrce is fucking sexy, I don’t even know how to describe him. Lady boner

Byrce is my new book boyfriend.

“That’s the difference between me and you, Love.” His soothing voice dips almost to a whisper. “You may know what you want, but I know what you need.”

He does know what Delilah needs, He understands her. He swears he not a dominate but Delilah begs to differ and so does the reader.

This is story about a broken women, and a black knight.

There are some complaints, but honestly I can’t even take a star off.
